Through a lens of visitation Dale Harding

Published by Monash University Museum of Art, Sydney and Power Publications, Sydney, 2021, 158 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 26 × 34.5 cm, English

Price: €32

A descendant of the Bidjara, Ghungalu and Garingbal peoples, much of Dale Harding’s multilayered practice is motivated by the cultural inheritances of his families, who originate in the Fitzroy Basin and the sandstone belt of central Queensland. Harding’s works pay homage to the stories and presence of matrilineal figures in his family.

Produced to accompany an exhibition of the same title at Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and the Chau Chak Wing Museum, University of Sydney, Through a lens of visitation specifically explores the artist’s relationship to his mother’s Country of Carnarvon Gorge and documents a major new commission and first-time collaboration with his mother Kate Harding. A textile artist, who since 2008 has employed quilt-making to tell her stories of family, culture and Country, Kate Harding’s quilts are presented alongside painterly responses undertaken by Dale Harding across various mediums.

Fontanel Constantin Thun

Published by saxpublishers, Vienna, 2021, publication (192 pages), postcard, compliment card and colophon in cardboard box (colour & b/w ill.), 24 × 28.8 cm, English

Price: €40

The publication Fontanel includes photographs by Constantin Thun taken in the artist’s apartment between 2016 and 2021. As embedded in Thun’s artistic practice of creating frameworks, challenging them, and drawing from them, his apartment is also considered such a framework and serves as a resource for the creation of new works. The identity of the resulting works is the sum of the information collected and repeatedly edited from the living spaces—whether in the form of notes made, books read, a quick snack, observations of one’s surroundings. Like the spaces themselves, the illustrated book with its snapshots also functions as an archive of these ephemeral conditions. Edition of 200.

Kai Althoff Goes with Bernard Leach

Published by Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2021, 188 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 30.3 × 35.3 cm, English

Price: €60

Produced on the occasion of Kai Althoff Goes with Bernard Leach at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, 7 October 2020 – 10 January, 2021.

German artist Kai Althoff (born 1966) is renowned as a figurative painter and creator of all-encompassing poetic environments that incorporate textiles, photographs, drawings and artifacts. Althoff draws from a wide range of literary, cultural and artistic influences in his work, and for his unique display at Whitechapel Gallery in London he pays tribute to British potter Bernard Leach (1887–1979), selecting around 20 of Leach’s ceramic vessels and tiles from the 1920s onward to be displayed in specially designed vitrines.

Edited by Emily Butler. Text by Dominic Eichler, Matthew Tyas. Interview by Iouri Podlatchikov, Kathy Halbreich.
